Eco-news; off-grid solar in Kenya

This was a very positive article from one of my favourite sites, CleanTechnica. One of their contributors lives in Kenya and writes from the perspective of someone living in a small community in the developing world.

There are some interesting initiatives in that region, and this one in particular has impacts on a number of issues; off-grid solar is cheaper than connecting to the grid in the area, it eliminates the need for more polluting kerosene lights, and polluting batteries for small appliances, and provides better, longer lasting light, permitting things like reading in the evening; students can study better, for one thing.
